Hidden Self

Personal experiences and aspirations around leadership enabling them to develop originality in their leadership capabilities is to break his or their hidden self egoism. That’s true. My reflection on this model of the study derives from Johari Window’s model of learning reminded me in my past corporate job that I have many reporting staffs. At once when I accepted the hidden of myself that being disclosed by the team, it helped to build strong trust with the others. A hidden self, sometimes it is unknown to you but might not want others to know. Open it up, it drives us to be a strong leader when we lead the team toward common objectives. Individuals can build trust between themselves by disclosing information to others and learning about others from the information in turn to disclose about themselves. With the help of feedback from others, I became aware of some of my positive and negative traits as perceived by others and overcome some of the personal issues that may be inhibiting my personal or group dynamics within the team. It made me stronger as a leader to lead a successful team. As a leader, we should openly accept the hidden self.
